Where I'm From
Ronkonkoma, Long Island, NY
To the right is a picture of the Ronkonkoma train station, which is the ONLY thing that's interesting or notable about Ronkonkoma.
Where I Went to College
Ithaca College, Ithaca, NY
Bachelor of Music in Music Education
Ithaca is in central upstate New York, and it's one of my favorite places in the world. There is a beautiful little city, several waterfalls (yes, waterfalls!!!!) and gorges, and it sits on the south end of Cayuga Lake, which at 37 miles long, is the longest of the Finger Lakes.
I was fortunate to have some really great experiences at Ithaca College. I played with the Symphony Orchestra, Concert Band, Chorus, and Jazz Ensemble and got to perform some of the most incredible music with those groups.
What I Do Outside of School
I love to golf when it's warm out, and go skiing when it's cold out. I've skiied all around the East Coast, and I really want to go out west to ski the mountains there!
I also play in a concert band called Brooklyn Wind Symphony. It's an all-volunteer band that plays concerts throughout the year in Brooklyn, and has traveled to places like Chicago and San Jose, California to perform! The group will be going upstate to Rochester this year to play at the NYSSMA conference!
